this was a great night as was the next show in Oregon at Champoeg State Park. I have that show on cassette but have never been able to find a cd or mp3 of it. Anyone out there have it and care to upload? It was basically a long weekend and Doc and Dawg played the following night.... sigh summer 98 was fantastic

very fond memories of this show. salmon ran us ragged (that show is on here too), and cheese came out and played very smooth, relaxed, and long songs (little hand > shine) as the sun set on over the sound. great to have a crisp soundboard copy!

This is a wonderful show on the waterfront pier in downtown Seattle. The stage and dance floor are directly above the waters of Puget Sound. This was the band's second time playing the venue as they had opened for Calobo there in the summer of 1997.
The "Hoo-Doo Bash" tour with Leftover Salmon was a really fun run of shows and on this night, LOS had us rocking hard before SCI even took the stage.
Rather than exploding out of the gates, SCI took their time introducing this very pretty version of Little Hands and then proceeded to play it flawlessly before dropping into some sweet slide-infused Cowboy Funk. They eventually burst into a solid version of Flood with a great outro jam that featured great interplay between Billy, Mike and Kyle. The Shine was probably only the second or third they had ever performed live so we didn't get a raging solo out of Kyle but Mike shreds his part at the end. The playing is very good and the potential of the song is clear.
They introduced another new song, Sand Dollar, by letting the audience know that it's in "five/four for those of you trying to follow along at home, there". This was an infant version but Billy played some ripping slide during the revelatory section and got us whoopin and hollerin!
A drum transition lead into a great Restless Wind that was short but full of energy.
Some of the Salmon guys came back on the stage for Mountain Girls>Carnival Time>Rider. The playing is really, really fun and the Rider is fantastic, especially the ending reggae section during which Mayor McCheese gets stolen from the stage by some OCF folks (you had to be there).
Local legend Baby Gramps closed the show with a rendition of "Let's all be fairies".
This show was distributed by Project Smile over the NYE 2004-2005 run in NYC. I wonder if that was the source for this upload. It was originally recorded by Edmund Edwards using his D8.
